Pour: Orangeish red with a nice creamy head that dissipated rather quickly and left a nice lace on the glass throughout the drink.

Smell: Heavy citrus hop oil smell with undertones of sweetness in the rear of the nose.

Taste: This is where this beer fell short to me. The front is a kick of hops that quickly gets overtaken by the sweetness of a red ale. The finish is a slight hop bite that lingers, but not too long.

Feel: Easy drinking, slight carbonation on the tongue.

Overall: This one fell slightly short in my book. It almost seemed that they had an overly sweet beer and tried to off set it with hops to create an IPA. Still a good beer, just not a great IPA.

Look - pours an slightly orange red with nice white creamy head and lacing.

Smell - malt, a little citrus hoppiness.

Taste - Hop profile is more on the fruit punch side and I really like that. Solid malt biscuit flavors on the finish for a great balance. I'm a fan.

Feel - smooth, creamy, carbonated appropriately.

Overall - Because it isn't aggressively hopped I feel like it is underrated. A very nice well balanced IPA that impressed me.

Pretty good red ipa. Kind or tart bitter.

This red IPA pours a rather clear redish-orange that is just a little lighter than good southern sweet tea. The head was beige and foamy but only about half a finger. The aroma is very nice citrus hops, apple, and a hint of spice and the flavor is like it. It has a nice medium body that is sweet and carbonated up front that turns crisp and finishes dry as you would expect from an IPA. This is a very well-rounded offering from Highland. My favorites from this brewery tend to be the seasonals. This and the Clawhammer Octoberfest are among them.
